Viewing Smart Contracts Through GDPR Lenses

Abstract

The term ‘smart contracts’ is superficially misleading. It does not connote ‘contracts’ as we know them, rather it is a technical coinage which represents computer codes automated to execute and consummate agreements to the exclusion of third parties. This article examines the various definitions of smart contracts and its interplay with data protection as required under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
